Go on a weekend safari
Take lessons at our Cape Town English school during the week and on one of your free weekends go on a safari for the ultimate taste of Africa. Experience an unbeatable safari in one of the excellent game reserves or national parks that are just a few hours from Cape Town.
Outdoor dining and picnics are a go! If you like food, you’ll love Cape Town. Cape Town cuisine is all about fresh, locally sourced ingredients. It won’t take you long to understand why Cape Town is regularly ranked one of the world’s food capital. Be sure to ask one of our English teachers at EC Cape Town for a recommendation!
Take a surf lesson
Catch a wave and learn to surf. Have you ever wanted to try surfing? Cape Town has warm water, beginner-friendly waves, and places to rent equipment and sign up for lessons. This is a fun activity to try with your school classmates, especially if you all have no experience.
Enjoy the sun
Soak up the sun and get your vitamin D. When summer is in full swing, the daily temperatures average between 17°C and 28°, although it can reach as high as 40°C! Sometimes the best thing to do is do nothing, so stretch out on the beach and work on your suntan.
